Dear Srs,

yum-updatesd-0.9-2.el5 appears that it's not working on freshly  
installed CentOS 5.2, using:

# rpm -qa "yum*"

I see some bugs ([1], [2] and [3]) in the bug tracker, and more info  
related to other distros like Fedora, etc.. with the same problem.

yum-updatesd does not automatically update in CentOS 5.2, is there  
any patch for this? anyone using this daemon for Yum?

This is the configuration file:

# grep -v "#" /etc/yum/yum-updatesd.conf
run_interval = 60
updaterefresh = 60
emit_via = email
email_to = santi at example.com
email_from = centos at example.com
do_update = yes
do_download = yes
do_download_deps = yes
